Great gift for Champagne lovers!
We all have our favourite Champagne brand, right? Your go-to celebration sparkler, your reliable gift, your luxurious Xmas treat. What's yours?
But is your favourite, definitely your favourite?
What if you were to try 6 famous Champagnes without seeing the labels, could you pick it out?
This event offers you the chance to blind taste six acclaimed Champagnes with no iconic logos, labels or bottles to cloud your judgement.
Come along to confirm your favourite, uncover a new one, or discover that perfect fizz.
The wines will be revealed at the end of the evening!
Along the way, learn all the geeky details about the Champagne houses and wine making process to help you find more beauties in the future.
Of course, there shall be cheese! You'll taste two artisan small production cheeses from Harrogate cheese monger The Cheeseboard. These premium cheeses will be something unusual that you don't find on everyday supermarket shelves and are specifically chosen to match with two of the wines.
It can be overwhelming eyeing up the wall of wine in a supermarket or wine merchants. Have you ever bought wine based on a snazzy label or solely because it was reduced from £12 to £6? We all have! How would you like to walk into a wine shop, confidently find your favourite wines, and leave 100% satisfied?
Anyone can learn to become a wizz-kid at smelling and tasting wine, all you need is practice. I've had people tell me that 'wine just tastes like wine' to them and they have a terrible sense of smell etc, only to find themselves saying 'I really can smell elderflower' only an hour into the wine tasting. It won't be long until you are picking out 'leather', 'peaches' or 'banana' too. Like any other muscle this is just a skill to be honed and toned and you'll be amazed at what you are capable of.
One of the world's most famous wine writers, Jancis Robinson, describes wine as 'geography in a bottle' - so true! You will see so many maps, pictures of soil, weather diagrams that if you aren't already a geography buff, then you soon will be! Alongside this, you also learn about history of wine regions and the culture that goes along with it.
Have you ever loved a wine but had no idea how explain what you loved about it and why? The more you taste various styles and flavours, you'll feel confident in talking about wine with anyone.
It's easy to make pals when you have a shared interest. These wine tasting events are designed for you to feel relaxed chatting with everyone in the room and getting to know other wine lovers like yourself.
Come by yourself, with your ma, your bestie, your partner in crime, your work peeps, whoevs. All are welcome for this epic geeky wine tasting
